Oakland Mall

Troy, Michigan - 1974

Sprawling aerial view of the Oakland Mall shopping center in Troy, Michigan, in 1974 (that's I-75 running north & south along the mall's west side, with John-R road along the east and 14 mile road just barely visible along the southern edge). I get a lot of tastey coffee from the Burger King that now sits in the lower-right corner of this photo (in the Oakland Plaza) just out of view to the east a few feet, behind what's now a Mobil gas station. They make some pretty good coffee, I must say.

In this aerial, the Oakland Plaza strip mall wasn't there yet. It's now a collection of stores that run all along the length of John-R road, right across from Oakland Mall, in the vacant area you see in this vintage view.
